Combinatorics, Geometry, and Physics
2 juin-25 juil. 2014
Erwin Schrodinger Institute - Vienna (Autriche)
We pinpoint a key frontier, still underdeveloped but promising, namely that of combinatorics, geometry and physics. Discrete mathematics has been revived during the last century by the advent of computers and quantum mechanics. But combinatorics itself, in contrast with the more traditional areas of algebra, geometry and analysis, has not been yet sufficiently exposed to the main ideas of modern theoretical physics, and the converse is also true. This interface has shown dramatic and accelerating progress in the recent years. Promising and entangled developments have occurred in the recent years and encouraged us to propose this focused program to develop this frontier and accelerate its progress.
